The Red Trolley Bus Lines/Routes Within Budapest

On this web page you will find details of the red Trolley Bus lines (routes) that run within Budapest, together with some main bus stop names that may be of interest to a tourist, student, someone living in Budapest (off/on) and/or someone thinking of buying a property in Budapest.

On other web pages throughout this website I have given actual time recordings in terms of how long it takes to get from the city centre to a tourist landmark for example, going via metro, tram, bus, bicycle, foot or a combination of these modes of transport. Those time recordings will give you an accurate timescale of how long it will take to get from A to B.


Budapest currently has 15 red coloured Trolley Bus (electric cable) lines, that operate in Pest only, with the first line starting from number 70 upwards. Apparently, 70 was chosen as the starting number because the first lines began operating when communist leader Stalin was 70 years old (in December 1949); even though some say he was born in 1878 and not 1879!

Anyway, as trolley bus lines cater for residents and workers, and not really for tourists, only line 70 will be of use to a tourist. It route runs from Kossuth Lajos Tér (in front of the Parliament building) to Heroes Square via Andrassy Út.
